OpenOffice.org database application: A first look review  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 25 2005 @ 10:52 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

Soon OpenOffice.org will introduce a database application to its office suite. For the last couple of years, OpenOffice.org has been developing its word processor, spreadsheet, and presentation manager programs to compete head-to-head with similar software products such as MS Office, Koffice, and Textmaker. The upcoming Version 2.0 rounds out the offering and adds the ability to create standalone databases, associated forms, reports, and queries much like MS Access. According to the documentation it's called OpenOffice.org Base.

This story will discuss the OpenOffice.org Base and how it can be used in your business. I'll touch on the similarities (plus differences) with the OpenOffice.org database program and Access. I'll continue with a little commentary on migration issues. We'll finish up by building a basic contact database, a form, a query, and a report using the wizards. If you are already an OpenOffice.org believer, you can just skip down to the "build a quick database application" section to see how it works.

Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

When Sun's Scott McNealy told us that Red Hat had the Linux market, we decided it might be a good idea to find out what Novell and Mandrakesoft had to say about that. We exchanged email with Mandrakesoft CEO François Bancilhon and Novell's director of product management and marketing, Charlie Ungashick, on the subject of Solaris 10, Red Hat, and how they compete in a consolidating market.

General NewsFrom The Inquirer:

THE SUN-SPONSORED OpenOffice.org project based on open sourced StarOffice code has released a preview of the upcoming OpenOffice 2.0 product. This version touts better MS-Office loading and parsing, strict XML compliant output, a new database program that mimics Microsoft's Access, and much more. It's available for 32-bit Windows, Linux (x86), Sun Solaris x86, and the traditional Solaris for Sparc. We used this opportunity to take this pre-release "version 1.9.65", which will end up being 2.0, for a quick spin.

Linux viruses  View Printable Version

General NewsFrom Rick's Rants:

Should I get anti-virus software for my Linux box?

The problem with answering this question is that those asking it know only OSes where viruses, trojan-horse programs, worms, nasty Javascripts, ActiveX controls with destructive payloads, and ordinary misbehaved applications are a constant threat to their computing. Therefore, they refuse to believe Linux could be different, no matter what they hear.

And yet it is.

Windows v Linux security: the real facts  View Printable Version 
Sunday, October 24 2004 @ 09:53 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom The Register:

Considering the publicity that has surrounded - and, despite super new security-focused Service Packs, continues to surround - Windows security issues, Microsoft's determination to demonstrate that Linux is less secure than Windows shows a certain chutzpah. The company has however had some support here; Forrester, for example, provides some numbers that can be used to support the contention that Microsoft flaws are less severe, less numerous and fixed faster. And although there's a general readiness among users to believe that Windows is a security disaster area, there's also a reasonable amount of support for the view that Linux would get just as many security issues if it had anything like Windows' user base.

Using Firefox's mozex extension to call an external mail program  View Printable Version 
Friday, October 15 2004 @ 12:24 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

I recently moved from Mozilla to Firefox 1.0PR for Web browsing on my Fedora Core 1 Linux desktop system. On that platform, Firefox doesn't do anything with mailto: links by default; it just prints an error message if you click on one. However, a Firefox extension called mozex allows you to use any external mail program for mailto: links in Firefox.

How SCO launched an open source company  View Printable Version 
Friday, October 08 2004 @ 03:53 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsFrom Newsforge:

Jason Macer never really cared what operating system was running on his servers when the Dallas area businessman's Web hosting resale business peaked with 26 servers last March. But Macer found out that lots of folks did care, and were leaving him because of it. It was not Windows that was the problem, it was SCO. Macer's hosting vendor, EV1 Servers.net, had signed on for SCO's Linux user license. Macer's customers reacted by seeking hosting elsewhere, cutting his business down to just two servers.

"[Customers] said they can't support companies that support SCO," recalled Macer. But he saw an opportunity in his loss, and has launched an all-open source colocation and dedicated service provider in OSI Hosting, which touted the addition of seven new datacenters last month.
